Half a year after the launch of the Grand Tour of Switzerland the official road signs have been completed. In total 650 Grand Tour of Switzerland road signs have been mounted at strategic crossings all along the circular route..
This ensures drivers can easily navigate their way around the 1000-mile long tour around Switzerland, passing by all the must-see sights of the country. Iconic names like Lake Geneva, Zurich, Montreux, Gstaad, the Matterhorn and The Gothard Pass are all included, but there are surprises too like the Lavaux vineyards or the Rhine Falls, the largest waterfall in Europe.
Most of the route bypasses motorways and main roads to provide a real in-country feel and visits many parts of Switzerland that would normally be passed by. A chance to buy local cheeses, or visit the source of the Rhine and even drive down the James Bond pass!
This brand new self-driving route, the Grand Tour of Switzerland, was launched in summer 2015 to provide the perfect route that highlights . Capturing the best that Switzerland has to offer, the new route has been designed to highlight the ‘must-sees’ of Switzerland. Spanning 1,000 miles, the Grand Tour of Switzerland passes through the country’s four language regions, visits 11 UNESCO World Heritage sites, passes along 22 lakes and runs over five famous mountain passes.
To enhance the tour experience, the first guidebook specifically on the Grand Tour of Switzerland will be available commercially at the beginning of 2016.
